I don't disagree...

But, I imagine there has to be some sort of hotline or fourth official that is on call. I'd love to know the mechanics of it, but I guess that's an insider thing. Pretty sure they're all independent contractors, so travel and 1099's for taxes take a chunk.

Also, some of these universities are well off the beaten path for airports. You don't have several direct flight options every day. Kind of makes me wonder if there could be a business as a travel agent for college basketball refs.
